Sugar and Spice limited edition Sugar Scrubs - just in time for Christmas!

It's beginning to smell (and look) a lot like Christmas here at Saponify HQ.
This limited edition Shea Butter Sugar Scrub is sure to please this Christmas.  I'm usually more of a fan of herbal scents, but this spicy combination of Cinnamon, Sweet Orange, and Ginger Essential Oils, along with natural Vanilla Oleoresin, is really something special.  Yum!

Meanwhile I've been busy making sure I have plenty of soap cured in time for Christmas, especially my best-selling Cinnamon, Oatmeal and Honey Soap.  It is always a favourite for Christmas gifts.  I think the soap and scrub will pair beautifully together in a gift set.  Stay tuned for more details!

Just in time for summer - Sea Salt Soap!

Nothing says summer in Australia like a trip to the beach, and I for one can't wait!

I decided to make a soap to welcome what I hope will be a long, hot summer here in Sydney -  Sea Salt Soap Bars.  They're scented with a blend of Lemongrass and Spearmint Essential Oils that is so uplifting and reviving.  I have no idea why I haven't put those two Essential Oils together before because clearly they are made for each other!

Salt Soap may seem like it would be rough on your skin, but not so!  After a few uses these bars end up smooth as river stones.  The bars are super hard straight from the mould, which is why I've made them in individual silicone moulds - slicing up salt soaps can be extremely tricky.

These soaps lather up with an abundance of fluffy, tight bubbles, and leave your skin feeling tingly fresh, and soft as ever.  I cannot wait to try one for myself!
